Marguerite Gilbert Obituary
August 14, 1924 - March 6, 2016 Marguerite Gilbert (Gauvreau) adoring wife of Murray, loving mother of Jay (Debbie) Gilbert of Los Angeles, and Jacqueline (Richard) Portman of Tallahassee, Florida, passed away March 6, 2016 in Tallahassee. She is predeceased by her parents, Pierre and Mae Gauvreau, four siblings, Valmore, Laurie, Eleanor and Erma and her beloved husband Murray Gilbert. Maggie was born Aug. 14, 1924, on a small farm in Peace River, Alberta Canada, a place where she was able to express her boundless energy horseback riding from the age of five, playing cowboy songs on her guitar, creating scrapbooks, staying up all night with her friends in the land of the midnight sun and roaming the hills she dearly loved. She met and married her true love Murray, an American soldier who was stationed there during World War II. When Murray returned from overseas at the end of the war, they went to live in Hollywood, California, her childhood dream, where they raised their two children. Maggie loved adventure and with Murray there was no shortage of that. Maggie loved the outdoors, reading and playing games, especially Scrabble, for which she had an almost uncanny skill to the very end of her days (she won her last two matches). She took great pleasure cooking, taking care of her family and making people laugh. She had a raucous sense of humor and continued to play pranks on her daughter and nurses at Seven Hills Health and Rehabilitation Center right up to the end. Her bright eyes and sweet smile will be dearly missed. No services are planned. In memory of Maggie, please consider a contribution to the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center or St. Francis Wildlife Association.
